Doomscizor, known as Deathscyther (デスサイザー, Desusaizā) in Japan, is an Energy Layer released as part of the Burst System. It debuted with the release of the B-12 Starter Deathscyther Oval Accel on August 8th, 2015. It later debuted in western countries with the release of the Single Pack Doomscizor Oval Accel.
Doomscizor features a four-bladed design with very smooth sides. It is based off of common depictions of Death as an entity with a skeletal design that uses scythes to attack. As such, the Energy Layer features a hooded skull design.
The colored plastic underneath the transparent casing is focused in the center as well as on half of the perimeter and its three teeth are in descending order, meaning that the first one is very tall, that the second tooth is just slightly shorter than the surrounding ring in the middle and that the third one is small.
Due to its smooth features and the weight concentration that allows for a pendulum or Flywheel Effect, it excels in Stamina. Without huge impacts with momentum, opponents are unable to use one of its protrusions to destabilize it or push it in reverse to make it skip over one of its teeth, especially since the first one in the series is tall, following the trait of Energy Layers labeled as Attack types by the producer. Therefore, in a Stamina battle, it holds its ground and can spin almost undisturbed until the end.
Use in Stamina Combinations
Deathscyther can be put to good use in the Stamina Combination Deathscyther Heavy/Ring/Spread Defense/Survive. Since Defense provides slightly more stability than Survive, it is able to withstand some hits and suspend the precession for as long as possible.
Deathscyther was once a Top-Tier choice for Stamina Combinations to the point of once being banned. While now legal for tournament play once more, the release of the heavier SwitchStrike/God Layer System has made Deathscyther too light to remain competitive.
As such, Deathscyther is recommended for collection purposes only.
Differences in the Hasbro Version
Hasbro's Doomscizor is visually unchanged from Takara Tomy's Deathscyther. However, its Flywheel Effect and Burst resistance is significantly reduced compared to its Takara Tomy counterpart. Furthermore, the release of the heavier SwitchStrike/God Layer System makes Doomscizor too light to be competitive.
As such, Doomscizor is also recommended for collection purposes only.
